The grounds and view are very nice. The staff are knowlegable and friendly. A chef demonstrates how to cook several dishes. The food was very good.

Bus tour of St Kitt was a little too ghetto, no infrastructure but mountainous views were amazing, beautiful view of Atlantic Ocean in one direction and Caribbean in the other (what a post card!) Friar Beach was just so so, even for a monk.

Visited as a member of a tour with Holland America Line. The main purpose of the tour was to sample Caribbean cooking. A lunch, using all local meats and vegetables was prepared for the group in a demonstration kitchen It was interesting and very tasty.

A great experience that gives you history and a sampling of some of the Caribbean's best rums. Make sure you buy some before leaving the island. Winston and Niki were great fun and very knowledgeable.

They said locals do show up and enjoy the bar area. Didn't look like they stopped you from exploring the grounds.
